I recently read an article about how Katherine Heigl is being insulting to "Grey's Anatomy." The reason? She complained about working 17 hour days. Excuse me? While some people may have to do it from time to time, who wouldn't complain? In the case of "Grey's Anatomy" where there are at least 10 other people with stories, it doesn't make much sense to put your actors through such long days. Working 17 hour days to get 10 minutes of air time would certainly offend most actors.
I'm reminded of a character actor whose costume took 4 hours to apply. After suffering weeks of early days to get into costume and waiting all day to go before the camera without being used, he quit. It's not only inconsiderate, but disrespectful to treat someone like that. He later came back to a spin-off show where they treated him as if his time were worth something.
It sounds to me like the directors and producers of "Grey's Anatomy" don't want to be bothered making an efficient schedule. Maybe they are so afraid she's going to quit that they want to make her quit. (I know, it doesn't make sense to me either) They need to stop and consider if they might make an improvement instead of slamming the actor who is being honest.
